The TC4 aluminium threaded shocks (standard on ft) are great if you buy the VCS2 kit so they use bladders/diaphragms instead of the weird foam system thats standard. If you're running stock or 19t get the IRS (irrgang) composite CVD dogbones, then use the standard outer cvd part (which the hex goes onto). The wear with these CVD's is almost non-existent (none where the pin goes through the dogbone in about 6 months of racing) and they're a lot lighter too.

It's probably in here somewhere, but does anyone have a good set-up for a med-bite, tight, small track? Also gearing for stock and 19t motors (64p gears). Thanks.

I suggest using a Barry Baker one, they work very well for me.

Default shocks for the TC4

I am looking at getting another set of shocks for my TC4. I have read that the Yok shocks are great...and some say go with Tamiya.

Does anyone have the part numbers for both companies? I know Yok makes two different lengths.


Thanks in advance for the info.


Jeff

I am confused with a "center" oneway. If you are looking for a front oneway I have a brand new one available for sale along with several other items for my FT TC4 I have up for sale

FS: FT TC4

The front oneway for the TC3 fits the TC4. The front oneway I have is packaged for the TC3 but is the same part according to Associated Parts listing on their site - rc10.com

Email an offer for the Oneway.

No, there is a center on-way for the TC4. I know this because a buddy has one, and it works like a dream... It is not so touchy with the brakes. The one-way bearing is located on the spur end of the shaft.

I have two front one-way and do not like them....

GPM used to make a center one-way for the TC3. If you can find one it would fit the TC4 as well.
